Vince Dean Proposes Updates To Criminal Court Clerk’s Office’s Online Records

Thursday, July 24, 2014

Vince Dean, the Republican nominee for Hamilton County Criminal Court clerk, said he has "identified a key way to modernize operations in the Hamilton County Criminal Court clerk’s office."

Saying he has heard from members of Hamilton County’s legal community, he has proposed updates to the clerk’s office’s online records system. 

“After speaking with attorneys across the county, it is clear the records system of our Criminal Court clerk’s office can be further modernized to benefit our local law community,” said Rep. Dean. “Currently, you can only find online a list of convictions and court dates for those accused of a crime; you must go through an often lengthy process to track down information beyond this. For attorneys, this can translate into valuable time lost for the citizens they represent.”

Rep. Dean indicated local attorneys have stressed specific files they would like made available online:

“Local attorneys have expressed the need specifically for Affidavits of Complaints, indictments, and motions in a case to be available to them electronically,” he said. “I understand it will take effort to transfer these files into the clerk’s online database and that we must redact confidential information from these files before publication. However, it will save the Criminal Court clerk’s office, the law community, and our citizens time and needless frustration in the long run.”

“It is time we utilize the available technology, making our Criminal Court clerk’s office, and our courtrooms in turn, more efficient and ultimately more effective” said Mr. Dean.
